Our Donkey Prices.
 In our area (Wisconsin) it will cost about $400-600 per year to properly feed, worm, vaccinate, along with hoof care for your donkey.

We put great effort daily in our donkey program over seeing breeding to birth and daily care of all animals year round on the farm.
We feed high quality vitamin/mineral supplements and feed for maximum growth and health from birth and beyond and we are very happy when our donkeys go to homes who will carry on that great care.

Price over view below with some exceptions as needed.     
Quality pet prices starting at $500 & up.
We will sell in pairs with some discount when possible.
Occasionally we have older jennets to retire and they generally make a nice donkey for a back yard pet (in pairs).
The cost of gelding has gone up so we must also charge more for our gelded donkeys. Currently $700-1200 depending on age, training, and quality.

A Breeding quality jennet(female) will vary in price and availability will change often according to our herd needs... prices from $1000-$4000

A Breeding jack(male) can range from $1500-$4000

You will find miniature donkeys to be one of the best hobby farm animals you could ever add; donkeys are loving and thrive on personal hugs and attention.

We are always looking for good quality loving homes.

Due to increasing vet costs an additional charge of $100(EIA & Health papers) per animal needed for out of state travel will be added to any donkey priced under $2000 unless prearranged in the purchase price or package price. 

Down payment to hold any animals and acquired vet costs are nonrefundable. 25% down payment and estimated vet cost is required “before” the vet is scheduled to do traveling papers.

Allow 2-3 weeks or more in advance of shipping date...rush papers will cost an additional $50 or more and will take minimum of one week from vet scheduling.

Ethical Breeding

** As a breeder we feel it is important to help educate new donkey owners and we can help you get started on the right foot with proper selection, care, and herd management!

** If you are looking to start your own small breeding herd, we offer consulting and breed selection tips for the type of animal you are looking for. We often can put together nice starter packages of “quality stock” to start a new breeder on a good track that you can continue to build upon!

** We want you to have a donkey that will best fit “your needs” and “your situation”!

** We welcome after purchase questions and enjoy getting updates on all the donkeys we have sold.

** We retain the right to refuse to sell any animal into situations that we feel are not suitable. We will ask you for details on what your are looking for, what use, also about your knowledge on feeding, housing, pasture size, etc.

** We realize that many buyers will not have the means to pick up there new donkeys.
We can deliver and this option can be worked into your package!!! We can also help you find a hauler for long distances or we will haul and meet you or even haul to your door.
We do have a fee for our expenses so the more donkeys that we haul in one load the more economical the shipping will be.

** We only produce a small number of foals each year. This number is determined on what we feel will be easily marketed each year to good homes.
Supplies are limited so talk to us early to be first in line for selection.
